Leeds 3-4 Millwall

 

hahahaha

 

Good, good. Just what we wanna hear.

 

 

 

The traore goal - you could just kind of feel it, it was definitely coming, he's had another storming game today. Him or Downing for my MOTM.

Wow, even Traore has scored  :exclamation:  :huh:

 

What a time to be alive.

 

Do you actually like ANY of our players?

 

Yes I do.

 

It's his first goal for us in about 40 games.  For an attacking player I believe that's slightly below average?

 

Wasn't necessarily on about Adama, you've both directly and indirectly slated a few of our players today.

 

I think I've 'slated' Gestede sort of but not really and Traore sort of but not really.  Anyone else?

Pointed out Randolph is poor with the ball at his feet.

Can we just play all of our remaining games away from home we seem to have our tactics nailed on. Great result but only Leeds seem to have slipped up badly today, shame.

 

well Bristol lost point yesterday and wolves lost today (but I guess we dont think we can reach them?)

Oh no, I said our GK isn't good with the ball at his feet in a joke  :(  He really isn't good with the ball at his feet though is he?  Anything else you have a problem with?  Might as well get it all out now.

I think despite today Wolves are way gone over the horizon along with Derby if I to be honest. Villa, Fulham and Sheff U winning was not good but at least Leeds came a cropper. We need Sheff Wed to do us a favour now against Cardiff, this is going to be really tight for those play off places.

Just returning to the important topic of the day, I was wondering the same thing about Rudy's name. I actually have a programme from Cardiff from 2013 when he played for them, which has him listed as Rudolphe Gestede.

 

Edit: Transfermarkt has his name as Rudolphe Philippe Michel Camille Gestede, so there you go.

 

Camille is great.

The top 2 we'll probably struggle to reach, Bristol City not that far in front of us.

    • Kieran Maguire did a breakdown of each championship clubs 20/21 accounts when they were published earlier this year. Bournemouth’s average weekly wage was £27,500, ours was £12,500. They’ve managed to retain the vast majority of their squad since relegation with Danjuma being the only major outgoing. My argument with Mitrovic was only to say that just because a player is surplus to requirements doesn’t mean they are not good enough. I’m also shocked that you think Howson - our player of the season - should be easy to replace. Obviously you are entitled to your opinion, but I personally wouldn’t be shelling out for another midfielder when I feel there are much more important positions to fill. Of course a lot depends on the budget we are working with, but I think we need two strikers, a left wing back (maybe even two), a right wing back, a centre back, and a goalkeeper. I just can’t see us filling each of these positions and getting another midfielder in. I don’t even think in the grand scheme of things that our midfield was that much of an issue last season, it was an inability to score and leaking too many at the back that ultimately cost us.
    • I don't think they do have an embarrassment of riches, which I suppose is another point I'm making.  Bournemouth weren't that good this season, they rarely impressed me when I saw them, and didn't impress me much at all against us. Mitrovic has had a fantastic season at this level, but he still might not be good enough for Newcastle, I'm not really sure what argument you're making there?  He scored 3 goals for Fulham in the Premier League last season.  Either side of that he's scored 26 and 40 in the Championship.  All that proves is that he's more than good enough for this level, which is lower than where Newcastle aimed to be when they sold him. I am realistic about incomings, I'm also realistic about our current players.  Howson was the worst of the three midfielders last season, and needs to be replaced in the side.  It shouldn't cost much at all to bring in a better player than him, he's not even our best midfielder let alone one of the top midfielders in the Championship, so replacing him really shouldn't be difficult.  If the club can't replace a bloke that wasn't that good to begin with when we signed him then what chance have they got of improving the rest of the team adequately enough to win promotion?  A GK, a midfielder, two strikers, left sided player.  Those are our priorities, that's where we need to upgrade in my opinion.
    • Poor article that. 10 mill for Spence? Coulson a Teessider? Come on Craig Johns ffs 
    • https://www.gazettelive.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/middlesbrough-loan-exit-round-up-24049100   This article mentions we are releasing Ste Walker this summer. His release is no surprise but dont think club have confirmed his release. Article again mentions figure of above £10m for Spence. Echo saying £20m. Hopefully somewhere in between.
    • Bournemouth didn't spend much last year, probably about the same as we did I think? For some reason they clearly rated other people ahead of the lad.  Nothing wrong with that of course, and it doesn't need to be a reflection of his ability.  My issue would be if he was our sole midfield signing, then we'd be putting a lot of faith in someone who was taken out of the Bournemouth side for whatever reason.  At some point we need to be bringing in players who will replace those we already have otherwise we're just not improving.
